None of this applies to kajongg 

I do actively develop kajongg, meanwhile it is even ported to python3
(The latest python-twisted release finally made this possible).

And I definitively want to port it to KF5.

But there is no way how I could do that until KF5 has KDE bindings.
And I have neither the knowledge nor the time to work on the bindings.

Otherwise, kajongg is very flexible about its runtime environment: The
identical source can

- run with python3 and python2
- run with qt4 and qt5
- run on Linux and Windows
- run with or without any KDE bindings - I wrote a minimal replacement
which implements the more important parts of kdelibs4, but it 
still looks rather like a qt application and not like a KDE application
